Sergio MendesArara ... CD
A&M, 1989. Used ... $3.99 5.99
There's a parrot on the cover, and the album's got a slightly more Brazilian feel than some of Sergio Mendes' other albums of the 80s – almost a return to the mix of soul and bossa grooves that Mendes was cutting back in the early part of the 70s! Brazilian influences abound here – not just in the rhythms and instrumentation, but also in the songwriting – which is done by Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins, Gilberto Gil, and Dori Caymmi. Vocals are also in an older Mendes mode too – not entirely the style of the Brasil 66 years, but often compressed together sweetly in a really great way. Singers include Siedah Garrett, Anna Della Espriella, Maxie Anderson, Gracinha Leporace, Angie Jaree, and others – and titles include "Surrender", "Balafon", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Nightlife", "Some Morning", "Mas Que Nada", "Sarara", "Toucan's Dance", and "The Island".

Sergio MendesDance Moderno ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1959. Used ... $18.99
The fab first album by Sergio Mendes – very different than his later work! Sergio's more in a straight bossa mode here – playing with a tight little combo that features saxophone and trombone next to his own firey work on piano – tight and jazzy, and even with a few traces of US Latin grooves as well! The album's proof that Sergio was already at the top of his game in the early years – and although released at the end of the 50s, the record's got a groove that would set the scene for countless bossa jazz albums to follow! Titles include the hard groovers "Oba-La-La" and "Outra Vez", plus versions of American jazz groovers like "Nica's Dream" and "On Green Dolphin Street" – and the cuts "Tema Sem Palavras", "Disa", "Diagonal", "Love For Sale", and "Satin Doll".

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes (1983) ... LP
A&M, 1983. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath! The sound of the set is very much in the best mainstream soul modes of the time – never too electric overall, but put together with a nicely warm groove that continues the legacy of R&B-influenced music that Sergio first started in the 70s. Vocals are by a variety of singers – including Gracinha Leporace, Carol Rogers, Leza Miller, Geoff Lieb, and others – and just when you think the whole thing's more LA than Rio, Sergio has a nice way of throwing in a slight Brazilian touch to remind you of his roots. Titles include "My Summer Love", "Carnaval", "Never Let You Go", "Voodoo", "Si Senor", and "Life In The Movies". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio – Sergio Mendes Favorites ... CD
Wrasse (UK), 1960s/Mid 80s. Used ... $4.99
Groovy groovy stuff – and a sweet little collection of Sergio's greatest work with his groups Brasil 66 and Brasil 88! The format of the ensemble was an instant hit – with 2 female voices harmonizing in the lead, bossa rhythms bubbling under the bottom, and plenty of sweet jazzy work on the keyboards from Sergio himself. The set brings together 24 tracks in all – mostly from the group's glory days at the end of the 60s, plus a few more overlooked gems from their mid 80s return to traditional bossa rhythms. The whole thing works wonderfully as a groovy bossa party from the very first note – and delightfully trips its way through tunes that include "Wave", "Pais Tropical", "Chove Chuva", "Mas Que Nada", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Like A Lover", "The Frog", "Bim Bom", "Trilhos Urbanos", "Puzzle Of Hearts", and "Pretty World".

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1966. Used ... $13.99
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker". CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Look Around ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time – all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin-voiced style that let Brasil 66 transform any tune they could get their hands on! There's some really great numbers here of Brazilian origin – including Joao Donato's "The Frog", Marcos Valle's "Batucada", and Gilberto Gil's "Roda" – not to mention Sergio's own "Look Around", which is an especially charming number! Other titles include "The Look Of Love", "Pradizer Adeus", and "Like A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Love Music ... LP
Bell, 1973. Near Mint- ... $6.99 11.99
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Wouldn't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88 ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The title says "88", but the album's from 1978 – and it's one of Sergio's great sets from the 70s that mixes older Brazilian roots with sweeter American soul! The sound is really wonderful – almost more LA than Rio, but still with plenty of Brazilian elements filtered into the mix – not just in the choice of tunes, which is great, but in the freer, looser jazz styles employed with the vocals. Sergio plays some especially wonderful keyboards on the album – further enforcing a sense of jazzy warmth – and vocals are mostly by the team of Carol Rogers and Marietta Waters, singing together in that twin-female approach that Mendes used often over the years, but also with Waters stepping out solo a bit too. Musicians include both American jazz talents like Bud Shank and Frank Rosolino – plus Brazilian artists who include Nana Vasconcelos and Nelson Angelo. Titles include a great version of "Waters of March (aka Agua De Marco)" – done at a fast clip, with English lyrics, and a very nice groove that makes the cut a real dancefloor groover – and other tracks include "Bridges", "Misturada", "That's Enough For Me", "One More Lie", "Life Goes On", and "Tiro Cruzado".

A&M, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $5.99
Was there ever anyone groovier than these guys? We don't think so – as Sergio had it all: 2 female singers in the lead, great bossa nova backing, and production on his records that couched the grooves in the pillowy-soft pop style of the A&M studios! This 17 track package isn't much on looks – but it does feature a great retrospective of Sergio's work – mostly 60s numbers, with a few of the best 70s and 80s numbers thrown in for good measure. Titles include "Pais Tropical", "So Many Stars", "Pretty World", "Bim Bom", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Alibis", "Song Of No Regrets", "Mas Que Nada", "Scarborough Fair", "Look Around", "Like A Lover", "One Note Samba/Spanish Flea", "Going Out Of My Head", and "Look Of Love".

Sergio Mendes TrioIn The Brazilian Bag (aka Brasil 65) ... LP
Tower, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Nice early stuff from Sergio – also issued as the album Brazil 65 on Capitol! That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius".

✨✧ Sergio MendesEncanto ... CD
Concord, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An all-star effort from Sergio Mendes – one that follows nicely on the comeback energy of his previous Timeless set! Like that one, this album has Mendes dipping heavily into contemporary soul modes – picking up a bit of R&B, bits of hip hop, and bits of a few other styles – then folding them back into music from his Brazilian roots! The blend is almost a 21st Century update of the mix of soul and bossa that Sergio forged in the 70s after his initial Brasil 66 work on these shorts – and the balance struck here is surprisingly strong – possibly even better than the sound of Timeless. Guests include Will I Am, Siedah Garrett, Ledisi, Carlinhos Brown, Vanessa Da Mata, Gracinha Leporace, Natalie Cole, and Lani Hall – and titles include "Catavento", "Morning In Rio", "The Look Of Love", "Dreamer", "Lugar Comum", "Odo-Ya", "Waters Of March", and "Funky Bahia".

Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1962. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album

A&M, 1970. Very Good+ ... $14.99 19.99
A groovy bossa gem from the glory days of A&M Records – an ultra-hip group recorded with production by Sergio Mendes! The feel here is a lot like that of Brasil 66 – bossa rhythms, sunny CA instrumentation, and lovely female vocals – in this case sung singularly, by the lovely Gracinha Leporace – aka Mrs Mendes! Instrumentation is arguably even better than on Brasil 66 records – with wonderfully groovy organ lines from Manfredo Fest, who plays Lowrey organ instead of the usual Hammond. A really essential slice of bossa nova – and a record we'd never part with! Filled with wonderful tunes that include "Gentle Rain", "Up Up & Away", "Wave", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Cacao do Sal", "Veleiro", "Saiupa", and "Nana". LP, Vinyl record album

Like Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66? Then you'll love The Carnival! The group was formed by three former members of Sergio's group, working in 1969 with stellar LA pop production from the mighty Bones Howe – all grooving in a style that's got all the best traces of the Brasil 66 sound! The Carnival only ever managed to cut this one album – but it's a sweet sweet masterpiece of bossa-styled harmony pop – with loads of light rhythms, jazzy riffing, and some incredible sunshine pop touches that seem to push the sound even farther than Sergio Mendes could have hoped! This album features a killer version of "Laia Ladaia", plus the tracks "Canto De Carnival", "Love So Fine", "Reach Out For Me", "The Word", "Walk On By", and "Turn Turn Turn". LP, Vinyl record album

A cool quartet with some very groovy vocals – a combo who seem to take some great inspiration from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – as well as other hip vocal groups of the 60s! The lineup features one gal and three guys – often with the gal singer in the lead, supported by warm harmonies from the male singers – all grooving to their own instrumentation, played on organ, guitar, and drums! This lean approach is mighty nice – and has the group soaring through a cool mix of soul and pop material that's all pretty upbeat and lively – given a few 70s touches on the keyboards at times, and coming across with a spontaneous feel that almost makes you feel like you're catching the combo in a club.

The beautiful first solo album by Lani Hall – recorded after years of work with Sergio Mendes in the Brasil 66 group – and done in a style that certainly reflects her great vocals with that ensemble, yet which also expands her sound tremendously! The set was arranged and produced by Herb Alpert in a spare, almost folksy style that still has some sweet LA touches – and the album's worth it alone for the leadoff cut – a version of Lesley Duncan's "Love Song", done in a gently grooving mode that's got a real folk-funk feel! The set's also got a great version of "We Could Be Flying" – and other tracks include "Ocean Song", "Vincent", "Come Down In Time", and "You". LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure group from the Michigan scene of the 70s – but one who work with a breezy vibe that feels a lot more like some of the Bay Area material we know from the time! These guys bring together a bit of jazz, touches of folk, and even some Brazilian currents – all in a mode that's nicely groovy on most numbers, and served up with a great degree of indie charm! Vocals shift between male and female leads – the latter of which are sometimes paired up on some of the best tracks, ala Sergio Mendes – creating a fullness that really lets those tunes flow! We're still not sure what was going on in the water in Michigan to create the group's special sound – but it's definitely been something that's keep the album going with collectors over the years. Titles include the funky fusion "People Suite" – plus"Surround Me", "Gotta Find Out", "Papa Taco", "Good Day", and "The Earth Has Music".

The general approach is west coast mellow – as the group features Alphonson Johnson, George Duke, Hubert Laws, Tom Scott, and Ernie Watts – and most of the tunes are English translations of older Brazilian tracks from the 60s and 70s, done by Sarah in an easy, jazzy tone.

Harmless (UK), 1970s. Very Good 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Stevie Wonder – whatta genius! Ever since his seminal late 60s sides for Motown, Stevie's had an influence on funk and soul that cannot be denied, and his genius is never so clear as when you're hearing it through the ears of other artists – the wealth of 70s talents who picked up on Stevie's unique grooves, and open them up even more! The influence of that Stevie-inspired era of artists is so huge, it's still being felt quite strongly today – as you'll hear in this brilliant set put together by DJ Spinna and Bobbito! The package features some of the best Stevie Wonder covers ever – nearly all from the early and mid 70s, and awash in electric keys, spacey soul, and jazzy wonderfulness! Titles include "Too High" by Norman Brown, "Bad Weather" by The Supremes, "You Got It Bad Girl" by Hugo Montenegro, "Golden Lady" by Jose Feliciano, "Spring High" by Ramsey Lewis, "I Was Made To Love Her" by Charles Earland, "Don't You Worry About A Thing" by Main Ingredient, "Superstition" by Sergio Mendes, "Buttercup" by Carl Anderson, "Love Having You Around" by First Choice, "Stick Together" by Minnie Riperton, and "Pastime Paradise" by Ray Barretto. 2LP set features 12 tracks in all – unmixed!

Fresh Sound (Spain), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare bossa jazz from the start of the 60s – two great albums on a single CD! First up is Jazza Nova by Paulo Alencar – an amazing lost bossa jazz session recorded in Brazil, but issued here in the US by Atlantic! Paulo Alencar's group is supposedly filled with "all stars" – and even though they're not actually named, the record's got this fantastic jazzy vibe throughout – very much like some of the new experiments in bossa and samba jazz from some of the bigger names of the time – including the larger combo recordings by the young, pre-Brasil 66 Sergio Mendes! Fast rhythms and jazzy solo work throughout – on titles that include "West Samba", "It's Really Bossa", "Bossa No 2", "Where Was I", "Hello, America", and "Zirigidoom". Next is the album Cool Samba – a very nice album of bossa instrumentals, released in the US under the obscure name of "Joao & His Bossa Kings". Joao is listed on the label as Joao Meirelles – also known as JT Meirelles on his more famous Brazilian recordings – and we wonder if Battle gave him the name of "Joao" to make folks think he was Joao Gilberto, who was selling a lot of records at the time! Whatever the case, though, this is a great album of tight little bossa jazz tracks – served up with small combo instrumentation that includes alto, flute, piano, trumpet, and percussion. Titles include "Nacao Nago", "Solucao", "So Danco Samba", "Samba Toff", "Samba Sem Nome", and "Essa Nega Sem Sandalia". CD features the bonus track "Moeda Quebrada" by Paulo Alencar. CD

RCA/Tres Selos (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier Brazilian guitarists like Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa – and on this set, she's backed by some light arrangements that almost have a groovy late 60s LA feel – with lots of nice lilting A&M-ish moments, touched by other spots of Brazilian grooves and funk! The blend is wonderful, and makes the record a real standout from Rosinha – a record that's more than enough to help her make her mark away from Sergio! Titles include "Asa Branca", "Summertime", "Samba De Minha Terra", "Tema Espanhol", "Boi Ta Ta", "Marinheiro", "Zanzibar", and "Mudei De idea". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – in a super-heavy record sleeve!)

✨✧ Gilberto GilNightingale ... CD
Warner/Collectables, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles".
